Welcome to the 3rd week of The Challenge!

Our 18-Week Challenge gives us an opportunity to read articles, listen to podcasts, and view videos dealing with the roots of racial injustice, the systemic racist policies in our institutions, and our own misconceptions of racism. The Challenge creates a dedicated time and space for us to reflect on our own personal experiences, biases, and assumptions. Each week you will be sent a new prompt to explore.

If you have just decided to join the Challenge or if you want to revisit previous week’s materials, you can find them on our website: https://ncjwcns.org/actions/antiracism/

Week 3: September 4, 2020

It’s hard to talk about race. However, it’s something Black people in America have been doing for centuries, and it’s time for White people to have the conversation openly. For week 3, we have selected an essay to help get us talking: How to be a Better White Person in 2020 by writer Michael Harriot.
